Healthy Food Connect: Food Systems  

Many people in Benalla have trouble buying healthy affordable food. Why is this so?

  • Poor Transport to shops

  • Low income

  • “Food deserts” where food is not available in a 500m walking distance

  • Expensive food: See how much does it cost for healthy food?

 

Benalla Health and Benalla Rural City Council are working together change our local food system.
